New Delhi: The CPI(M) on Sunday alleged that Union Ministers belonging to Trinamool Congress were inciting violence in West Bengal after the results for the civic body elections were announced.

Without naming any leader, CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Sitaram Yechury said the TC ministers have been "encouraging" violence in the state "like they had been supporting Maoists earlier".

"The Trinamool Ministers are supporting and encouraging violence in the state after the civic body elections. The Centre should look into the role of its own cabinet minister in inciting such violence," he told reporters.

So far, he said, five activists and supporters of the CPI-M have been killed in Birbhum, Murshidabad and Bankura districts. There have been attack on the houses of CPI-M supporters in other places too, he claimed.

Trinamool Congress triumphed in the civic polls held in West Bengal on May 30.
